Crystal Cruise Line Adds New Luxury Cruises, Opens Amsterdam Office

Crystal River Cruises Amsterdam Office Opening

Crystal River Cruises has announced a series of new itineraries in addition to the grand opening of a new Amsterdam office, with CEO and President Edie Rodriguez and Vice President Walter Littlejohn present. 

The new office will serve as additional operations assistance for its expanding fleet of luxury river yachts, which officially launched in July with Crystal Mozart’s maiden voyage. Amsterdam is a highlight destination on the “Jewels of the Rhine” and “Grand Europe” itineraries planned for Crystal Bach and Crystal Mahler, respectively, for summer of 2017. The city will also be a home port for Crystal Debussy’s 7- and 10- night voyages beginning in April 2018. 

In addition to Amsterdam, Crystal Bach and Crystal Mahler will visit Cologne, Koblenz, Antwerp, Basel, Frankfurt, and others throughout Germany, Austria, Netherlands and Switzerland. The two luxury vessels will be the first Rhine Class river yachts in Crystal’s fleet, with Crystal Debussy and Crystal Ravel to follow in 2018. The vessels will be Europe’s first and only all-balcony, all- suite river ships. Guests will enjoy ample space and options aboard the 135-meter river yachts (the maximum size permissible to transit the Main-Danube Canal).
